match the pairs (pronouns)
These two games test whether you can place a list of random pronouns into the following categories:
  • Personal pronoun. Personal pronouns (e.g., "he," "she," and "they") represent specific people or things in a sentence, making communication more concise.
  • Possessive pronoun. Possessive pronouns (e.g., "his," "hers," and "theirs") represent something while indicating ownership.
  • Relative pronoun. Relative pronouns (e.g., "who," "which," and "that") connect clauses to provide information about a noun.
  • Demonstrative pronoun. Demonstrative pronouns (e.g., "this," "that," and "those") point to specific objects to clarify what we're referring to.
  • Reflexive pronoun. Reflexive pronouns (e.g., "myself," "yourself," and "itself") reflect the action of the subject back onto itself.
  • Emphatic pronoun. Emphatic pronouns are the same as reflexive pronouns, but they are used for emphasis.
  • Indefinite pronoun. Indefinite pronouns (e.g., "everyone," "something," and "nothing") refer to non-specific people or things.
  • Interrogative pronoun. Interrogative pronouns (e.g., "who," "what," and "which") are used to ask questions.
  • Reciprocal pronoun. Reciprocal pronouns (e.g., "each other" and "one another") express mutual actions or relationships between people or things.
